About J B Scott

J.B. Scott has embraced his obstacles and developed his talents to become an extraordinary human being. Throughout grade school he faced jeering from handfuls of students due to having pervasive developmental disorder. But his love for baseball (passed on from his father) was a staple. Throughout his childhood he played on rec teams in spite of the fields not being up to today's standards. Putting all of his effort into mastering the game, he played for three years on the Hickory Hawks High School varsity team; he was even Team Captain his senior year. In tandem, he volunteered to work on the Hawkeye Newspaper Staff as Assistant Chief Editor. After high school, he focused primarily on training people how to properly lift weights and spent time at Grand Slam 2; this is where J.B. practiced batting (for many years). Despite having to relinquish his membership because of finances, he always encourages baseball newcomers to experience Bobby Hoeft's strong mentoring, "He will help you succeed in anything you want to do in life. Without him and his loving family's support, I never would've gone as far in professional baseball as I did. It was from age 18-on that I learned in life that if there was anything you wanted you had to work for it." A perfect example was when after giving his best in the 2012 Florida Sunkist Winter League that his friend Toma Irokawa recommended him for the inaugural Puerto Rico Instructional Baseball League. He describes it as an honor to have spent two months of winter in a beautiful nation where he and the team (the Touristas) grew to be a family. Five times J.B. Scott was named Game MVP and twice helped spark a come-from-behind rally. Since that experience, he has continued to follow MLB dreams while at the same time has begun taking courses towards earning a degree in Exercise Science. Surprisingly, in conjunction with a demanding schedule that is required to support two simultaneous lofty goals, J.B. Scott is also very active in community service. Dr. Evan S. Fiedler played Little League and Babe Ruth baseball, and his passion for the sport is related in a reflection in the book. His other published nonfiction works are mostly on running, but has branched into writing with athletes, students, and new authors. Two recently completed meaningful projects have been Sister Surrendered (by Darla M. Grese) and Because We Care (by College of The Albemarle students).show more
